I had a great day yesterday; The Academic Writing -course groups started and it's looking good! I ended up in a very small group luckily - only 6 people - so I'm a bit more relaxed. I don't really like huge groups. Apparently I'm a bit shy I quess... : ) Tomorrow at eight another beginning course: Spoken english.. A new teacher also.. feeling a bit excited ;)
In the evening then it was training time again! : )) The "topic" was Kihon oyo jutsu, which basically means pair-applications of the Kihon kata's techniques. The warm up was done with ukemi drills, which I love (as an sort of ex-judoka) I still can't make the difference between the two rolling ukemis though and the legs are always killing me since it took me a long time to get them right the 'judo-way' and now I should unlearn that! :D Again I had a funny incident when in one of the applications the opponent takes a hold on your gi and then you need to perfom the technique. Well... I didn't really think and just took a normal judo-hold on her jacket as a natural reaction to her hold on my gi x) She just watched me like "What the hell....." And it definately wasn't the first time I did some goofy judo-stuff in karate! And it for sure won't be the last time...
